First, my apologies for scheduling the Yi-Tan call on MLK Day, but it seemed that something bigger was going to trump us on Tuesday. May it warm up a little for the inaugural.
We dipped into cloud computing recently; now we're headed a bit deeper (higher?), guided by Pat Kerpan, CTO of CohesiveFT.
Today's cloud offerings from Google, Amazon and others aren't interchangeable. They imply different decisions and uses, which naturally appeal to different sorts of clients. CohesiveFT's Elastic Server and VPN-Cubed smooth and secure the experience.
With Pat, let's discuss:
* What's a grid, what's a cloud and how do they differ?
* How has the cloud evolved over time? What needs improvement next?
* What's a solution stack?
* When might most corporate computing happen in clouds (if ever)?
